Heat transfer vinyl, or Htv for short, is an advanced custom vinyl polymer which is used on many materials and fabrics to produce beautiful designs and other promotional items. It usually comes in a large roll or piece form with an aluminum or stainless steel backing which allows it to be sliced, weeded, and laid on a supporting surface for heat treatment. The heat transfer vinyl comes with an epoxy coating and moisture resistance, which make it ideal for high traffic areas. Most Htv vinyl products are made from high-density polyethylene, but there are other products on the market made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), and polyvinyl butyral (PVA), which are lower density than Htv. They are available in rolls of large quantities, like rolls of paper, but are also available in smaller sizes such as stickers, vinyl lettering, and other products, which may be customized to your specifications.
How Do You Choose the Perfect Heat Transfer Vinyl Cutter?
A popular product that uses heat transfer vinyl is the Weedingacker Heater. This heat activated device is especially good for weeding and controlling weeds that are resistant to herbicides. When the weedingger is heated it separates the weed seeds from the plant matter. It is a very convenient and effective way to control and remove weeds in raised beds, along sidewalks, alleys, driveways, patios, decks, gardens, parks, baseball diamonds, fountains, etc.
Another popular product which uses heat transfer vinyl is the Weeding Bag. The bag comes with an integrated cutting system where the customer chooses the type of cutting edge and design they want for their Weeding Bag. Once cut, the customer places their weeding tools in the bag, which is designed to keep them dust free and protect the tools from moisture. Each cutting tool can accommodate up to six cutting knives, which is enough for most gardens. This product not only makes it easier to get rid of weeds, but it also protects the tools from weather and scratches, helping them to last longer.
